Normally this type of shot would require a tripod. By adjusting the shutter speed, the camera can turn the rushing water into a smooth flow. Any movement of the camera when the lens is open ends in a blurry image and worthless picture. Shooting on the fly, I didn't have a tripod, so I was forced to improvise. By placing the camera between a couple of large rocks, I did my best to hold steady for the "artisic shot." Looking at it now, I am pretty impressed with the turnout. This is my first attempt at the smooth look to flowing water, so I guess I can cross that off my list of pictures to gather. Hope you like it!
